*sigh* I like this. It's in this. But that's not available in regular bookstores and the shop doesn't ship overseas. The passport issue has now become critical. *sigh*

......What?? :P

You mean there's actually a store that doesn't ship overseas? Can't you just see some clueless person asking that?

..Wait =P

In all seriousness, there's no other shop that sells that particular crocheted sweater?

*laughs* What a strange idea! Someone who doesn't ship overseas... :P

There are other shops that sell the magazine (I'm after the pattern itself), but of the shops I've found, most don't ship overseas, a couple don't take foreign credit cards, one only accepts bank transfer, and one doesn't have that particular issue. >.> Of course, half the fun would be in doing something as silly as going overseas for a magazine. $10 magazine + $1000 flight ticket. :P

(We'll completely ignore the pr0n value of Japanese yarns and other goodies that might be found in the yarn shops over there compared to here. Yeah some of their stuff comes over, but not all of it. *_* )

Y'know, we know someone in Japan. Actually, I know a knitter currently in Japan. She could take pity on us…

*laughs* I thought you might like the looks of that one. :P

I know. I'm seriously tempted, but... Ummm...

That is gorgeous. Well beyond my knitting skills, which are currently confined to scarves, hats, mittens and blankets, but gorgeous nonetheless.

*laughs* You never know what you can make when inspiration strikes. The thing that gets me about sweaters is that they're larger projects so you need more staying power. Actually, come to think of it, I haven't managed that quite yet... ^^;

I find that while doing any project, I tend to lack patience, and so I want it done now, fast, now!

You know, you might want to try asking acclimate if they'll buy it for you... (this place if you've never heard of them.) I use them to buy hard-to-find out-of-print manga as they're good at searching for the rare stuff... I don't know if they're willing to buy magazines/books, but it's worth asking. I would think as long as they get a commission, why not? ;)

Or you could hope it pops up on Y!J and use celga.com to get it... there are a few issues of it on there right now.
